Prenatal Bonding (Bindungs-Analyse by Raffai) opens a window to the womb and helps to create an intense bonding between the parents and their unborn baby. This method is an empowerment for both mother and fetus, a great help for a full-term pregnancy and for giving birth much more joy.

After birth, babies are reported to be easier to nurse, experience a more secure attachment to their parents, have a remarkable degree of self-esteem and have easy access to their personal potential.

Based on extensive research in Psychoanalysis and pre- and Perinatal Psychology and Medicine, the Hungarian Psychoanalyst Jeno Raffai, PhD, developed this ground-breaking strategy to support pregnant women from the early beginning of gestation thorough birth. Since 1995, more than 10,000 families in Europe and the United States have been facilitated, researched, and carefully evaluated with outstanding results for the physical and emotional maturity of the babies (Goertz-Schroth, A et al. JOPPPAH 2023).
